The list of top 7 hot spots for a staycation in Singapore to pamper yourself and your loved one is here!
Funny trivia – the very first time I encountered term “staycation” was only when I moved to South East Asia 7 years ago and as a regular answer that I got from my local buddies when I asked what are their plans for the weekend was – “I’m taking my girl for a staycation.”
At first I was I was going like “Stay…WHAT?”, then I was “But…WHY!”.
And then eventually after deciding that “staycation” must be an Asian thing, I came to the conclusion that “Actually why not!”.
Because after all, who doesn’t like to pamper himself/herself from time to time without hassle and bustle of packing and travelling.
But for those who don’t know….
What does Staycation means?
It’s predominantly couple activity popular especially in Asia when people book a weekend stay in a fancy or romantic hotel or resort villa in their own city.
The intention is to relax, take a break from work and do – well, nothing. That’s why many people choose stays that besides beautiful hotel offers also some additional pampering services such as spa, massage or all-inclusive dining and a mandatory pool.
